The House passed a new law to stop the Air Traffic Controllers from striking. That’s fantastic news if you’re planning a visit soon…
“The government bill, fast-tracked by the executive and the legislature working in rare unison, makes it a criminal offence for any ATC to refuse to work when required, and provides for penalties of up two years in prison and/or a fine of €2,550. The penalties are provided for under an existing law.”
Looks like the facebook peeps and other commentators are very pleased too!
